Such a lovely place, perfect as a base for our time-out trip to Bali, the staff are really kind and helpful. We'll be back. Thank you so much, Craig and Nadine.
The ArtVilla was absolutely beautiful and cosy, and was the perfect place for our relaxing few days in Ubud. Everyone at the Villa was very warm and friendly and so helpful, and the book in the room describing nearby restaurants came in very handy! The breakfast was amazing and the location of the villa was great, hidden off the main road so you got the exclusion but also walking distance from most things. The town immediately accessible by the Villa is charming and has some great eateries. A little bit of a walk down and you enter the heart of Ubud and we had a lovely time walking to most places and not having to rely on any other form of transport. We had a big room on the ground floor which opened right out to the pool area. The room and bathroom was great, even though we hardly spent much time in it. While we didn't get to meet Bruce, we still had an amazing time and have all the staff at Art Villa to thank for it.
Nous avons été très bien reçu dans ce guesthouse tenu par Wayan et Bruce.
Tout est très joliment décoré, la propreté est impeccable.
Wayan a su nous renseigner sur les endroits à visiter, les spas, les restos et nous a permis de faire ensuite un transfert à Gili Trawangan dans les meilleures conditions.
Nous avons également passé quelques nuits dans la chambres du bas louée par Bruce (elle se trouve à 20 m) qui est une chambre très grande et très bien décorée.
les salles de bains extérieures sont magnifiques.
seul petit bémol: les jus de fruits ne sont pas à la hauteur de nos attentes (comme tous ceux que nous avons gouté à Bali) et sont facturés en plus du petit déjeuner.
l'endroit est situé à 5 minutes du "centre" de Ubud et cela peut se faire à pied.
A noter que Artvilla loue des scooters pour un prix raisonnable.
dans l'ensemble, une très bonne adresse à recommander.
Welcome drink was refreshing. Room was exactly as illustrated on page. Many pubs, cafes and local minimarts within walking distance. Nature walks are also easily accessible. However, entrance to Ubud ArtVilla might be a little less eye-catching hence advise to keep a lookout if entering for the first time.
What a wonderful place to stay. I can't recommend it highly enough. The villa is beautiful, the staff are lovely and its within close walking distance of great restaurants, a yoga studio and the well-known Alchemy restaurant. Ubud central is an easy 15 min walk away.
Wayan and the whole crew gave us a fantastic experience throughout our stay in Ubud. A relaxed atmosphere but with a 5 star hotel service. Artvilla has a great recommendation for cafes around the area, and it's only a short walk from central Ubud. Would visit again!

About the Host, Bruce
I am an artist, teacher and cultural travel organiser. My interest in the arts takes me regularly to Asia and many locations. Bali has become more than a travel destination and my connections with the Balinese people have enriched my life. i hope to share some of this with you if you stay at my Boutique Hotel Villa in Ubud.
Of course my life revolves around art, music and culture and these things inform the philosophy of the Villa. But I also love nature, the outdoors, adventure and cultural discovery. If you stay with us we will share all this with you.
